Knoxville Indoor Air Quality Services
Improve Your Home or Business’ Air Quality
Ambient Aire is Pest-Ops, LLC’s indoor air quality (IAQ) inspection service. We specialize in testing and measuring the quality of indoor environments. As a Knoxville IAQ certified company, we offer a variety of services to improve indoor air quality, including air quality inspections, laboratory testing, duct cleaning, consulting, and mold inspections. Our entry-level inspection is the IAQ Phase I Investigation and it is designed to examine and identify problems within the indoor environment, draw conclusions based on the findings, and provide a list of recommendations for an effective solution.
Our Indoor Air Quality Inspection Process
At Pest-Ops, LLC, we focus on moisture, drainage, ventilation, and other factors that combine to form mold growth. We can also inspect for allergens, including dust mites, pollen, mold or mildew sports, and other airborne particles. We then provide a complete report with specific explanations and instructions to improve the air quality of your home or office.
The complete IAQ investigation encompasses a far greater scope than just measurements of indoor pollutants; we provide a detailed inspection and evaluation of building systems. First, our Knoxville indoor air quality specialists inspect the internal components and chambers of the air handling units and assess the filtration systems.
Ways We Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency reports that indoor air quality is often five times more polluted than outside air. The largest single action to improve your indoor air quality in Knoxville is to remove the source materials from the air system. An examination is completed of a representative sampling of the ductwork systems visually or with a high-resolution optical duct camera and video tape system, which includes video monitoring of air ducts to ensure the cleanest possible solutions. We also collect samples of microbial surfaces and air samples from representative areas of the building, including carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, and hydrocarbons. After the inspection and cleaning, we provide a before and after video of the duct in which clients can see our results.
External factors are also examined to determine to what extent they contribute to problems within the building’s environment.
We use photos to document relevant areas of the building, including:
- The roof
- AC units
- The front of the building
- The real of the building (loading dock)
- Office areas
- Shop areas
- Janitorial closets
We also conduct an examination of problem areas, such as water stains on ceiling tiles, blocked or deflected air supplies, dirt radiating form the air suppliers or ducts, dirty air returns with filters removed, and any other area possibly affecting indoor air quality or comfort level.
At the conclusion of our inspection, the environmental readings are recorded, and the samples collected are evaluated in our laboratory. The results are compared to regulatory and industry standards and guidelines. Detailed reports are then available about healthcare concerns.
